Over the past 120+ years of commercial construction history, there have been numerous changes to building design; construction methods and occupant needs that have impacted the design of Architectural Aluminum Framing Systems. Architectural Aluminum Framing started 100+ years back with the introduction of aluminum storefront frames. More recently we have seen a growth in the high-rise construction in most urban areas. This has driven the growth of a newer system called “Window Wall”. A proper understanding of the benefits and options available with Window Wall will reveal this to be a great solution to your next high-rise and multifamily construction project.
